Caption: Amelia Earhart (1897-1937), US aviation pioneer, at the controls of her plane just before her final takeoff in 1937. Earhart was the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air as a passenger (1928), fly solo across the Atlantic (setting a new record of 13 hours and 30 minutes, 1932) and fly from Hawaii to California (1935). In 1937, Earhart attempted to become the first woman to fly around the world. Her Electra plane, with navigator Fred Noonan also on board, disappeared on 2nd July 1937 whilst flying over the Pacific Ocean from New Guinea to Howland Island.
